Tlacoyos are a traditional Mexican dish made of a thick corn masa harina dough that’s stuffed with mashed beans and topped with delicious toppings.
Let’s get started!
- Masa harina - water - salt - beans - oil
For an extra special treat, try frying your tlacoyos to give them extra flavor and help give them a more sturdy structure.
Add oil to a medium skillet over medium heat, add the black beans, and bring to a simmer. Mash the beans until they are mostly mashed.
Place black beans on one side of the masa. Fold the other side of the masa over the beans to form a crescent shape, and press and pinch the masa together to seal in the filling.
Heat a skillet, place the tlacoyo on the hot surface and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Top with your favorite salsa or toppings!
